Brilliant DIY: Delicious Scones!

In preparation for an upcoming tea party, I was researching recipes for scones. I came across this one by Alton Brown (Food Network). It looked simple enough - and it was! It tastes amazing as well - light, flaky & fluffy, buttery and perfectly sweet. The kitchen is definitely not my favorite place and the oven is not an appliance I use all the time but this recipe made me feel like I knew what I was doing! I did cut out the scones with nonconventional scone shapes, but that just makes them more fun to eat, right?!

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup cream
1 egg
Handful dried currants or dried cranberries


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well. Cut in butter and shortening. In a separate bowl, combine cream with beaten egg then add to dry ingredients. Stir in fruit. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Roll dough out and cut into biscuit size rounds. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown

Bon apetite!
